It looks like Fortis's sky-high South Street Seaport tower is moving forward after years of planning. Broker Fredrik Eklund, whose Instagram account is a small goldmine of new renderings and things of the like, just took to the social media platform to promote his involvement in 151 Maiden Lane, to be known as One Seaport, all while revealing that the tower will stand a whopping 60 stories tall along the East River. October's round of renderings for the residential tower depicted a helix-shaped building compliments of architects Goldstein, Hill and West, who may still be involved in the project. At the time, the building was expected to top out at 51 stories and hold 74 apartments, but given the added floors, the building's apartment count is literally up in the air.
The building will adjoin a 33-story Peter Poon hotel, which appears in DOB filings. Filings have yet to be made for the 60-story tower with the DOB, but the block-long property comes without height restrictions and can accommodate a building with up to 138,468-square-feet of residential development.
